Alright beautiful friends. This is a topic I’ve wanted to write about for YEARS and here I am, finally doing it. I’m going to talk about a topic I’ve referenced throughout many of my posts, but never addressed directly: MANIFESTATION AND THE LAW OF ATTRACTION.
Yes. It’s happening. I’m going to teach you how to start creating the life of your dreams using the law of attraction and the power of manifestation.
You may have heard of the law of attraction, especially if you’ve seen the movie “The Secret” floating around Netflix, but if you’ve never heard of it before, that’s okay! I’m going to explain the law of attraction from my own personal perspective based on the many sources I’ve been using to study and practice over the years. If there are words I use or concepts I reference that you don’t understand yet, hang in there – I’ll most likely explain them or have a link to another post that does. You can also always leave a comment or contact me to get further clarification on something.
What I do ask is that you go into reading this blog post with a very open mind. The topics I discuss can be very spiritual and do not come from any traditional religion, but the concepts can be applied to most religions. In order for the law of attraction to work for you, you are going to have to let go of your old way of thinking and open yourself up to new possibilities, so you might as well start now.
What if I told you that you have the power to manifest ALL your desires?
Manifesting is a very powerful tool to help you take control of your life and your power. The more comfortable with it you get, the more inspired you will become by seeing the incredible POWER you have inside you to manifest your desires and create the life you truly dream of. You already have this power, all you have to do is learn how to use it.
I have manifested so many amazing things, big and small, that I would have never thought I had the power to create until I learned how to take control of my life and my happiness. I have manifested things as “small” as receiving or finding unexpected money, parking spots, and phone calls, and things much bigger such as specific apartments, my dream job, a move across the country to the city I’ve always dreamed of living in, the car I own, plane tickets, countless opportunities, even love. And if I can do it, you can too.
I first learned about the law of attraction in late 2013 during a pretty low point in my life when I came across a movie on Netflix called The Secret. It is based off of a book by Rhonda Byrne who now has a whole series of books about the law of attraction that I strongly recommend checking out.
This was the gateway into what would very soon change my life COMPLETELY.
Over the next few years, I learned as much as I could about the law of attraction. I practiced manifesting daily. Some things were easy, some things were hard and took longer to manifest. As time went on I figured out it’s all about my alignment and how much resistance I have towards whatever I am trying to manifest. And I also learned that it’s easier than most people think. That’s why I want to share it with as many people as I can.
Manifesting and practicing the law of attraction takes some inner work to get over your fears, drop your limiting beliefs, and learn how to get in alignment and live from a frequency of love. This is an ongoing process, but like most things in life, the more you do it, the easier it gets!! I promise. All it takes is little steps to improve your mindset and the energy you give to the world and before you know it, getting into and staying in alignment with your desires will be easier than you imagined and you’ll be manifesting left and right.
What is the Law of Attraction?
The law of attraction is actually a fairly simple concept that gets over complicated by so many sources trying to explain it in different ways. Don’t worry, we’re going to simplify it as much as we can.
The definition of the Law of Attraction is this: That which is like unto itself is drawn.
So, in plain and simple words, the law of attraction has one “rule”:
Like energy attracts like energy.
Law of attraction tells us this in a few ways. You may have heard of some of these sayings before:
- What you think about you bring about
- Thoughts become things
- You attract the energy you give off
- Your vibe attracts your tribe
Any of those sound familiar? They are all references to the law of attraction. Things that match your vibrational frequency are drawn to you.
What is vibrational frequency?
Your vibrational frequency (sometimes referred to as your vibration, your vibe, your frequency, or your energy) is simply a result of the energy you are currently giving off.
Energy is the electrical current at the basis of everything that exists. If you are grumpy, you are giving off a lower frequency to the world around you. As you go about your day you are more likely to come into contact with things and people that match that low frequency. This is why when you start your day on a bad note and don’t do anything to correct it, it is easy for things to spiral downward as the day goes on.
Have you ever had one of those days where it’s just one thing after another, everything seems to be going wrong, and you can’t catch a break?
Yep, that is a perfect example of how things are drawn to you based on the current frequency you are giving off. Likewise, I’m sure you can recall a day where you were in a great mood, had a positive outlook, and things went great for you all day. Maybe there was no traffic on the way to work. Maybe you got free lunch. Maybe you got a phone call with good news. Like energy attracts like energy.
Ok, that’s short and sweet. But how do I use that to manifest the things I want?
First, let’s talk a little more about what it means to manifest something.
What is manifesting?
Manifesting is basically just attracting something you desire into your life. Whether it is a material item, money, health, an experience, an opportunity, an outcome, a person… whatever it is that you want is possible to manifest.
Abraham Hicks teaches us that there are 3 simple manifesting steps:
- Ask for what you want
- What you want is vibrationally created (no effort from you for this step)
- You allow what you want by becoming a vibrational match with it.
Pretty simple right? Yeah. So why do we struggle with it so much? Why aren’t we all driving around Ferraris and living in mansions? Well, usually because we aren’t truly completing step 3, the most important step.
When we aren’t manifesting the things we ask for, we are not matching the vibrational frequency of what we asked for.
When we aren’t a vibrational match to something, it’s impossible for it to even come into our existence. Think of it this way: When you listen to the radio, you tune it to a specific frequency, say 101.3FM for example, and you hear the music that is being broadcasted to 101.3FM. You do not expect to hear the music from 101.3FM if your radio is tuned to 94.5FM. This is the same way the law of attraction works with you.
Your frequency determines what you experience. To put that into real life terms… there’s no way you are going to manifest more money into your life if you are focused on the lack of money you have, because you are giving off the frequency of not having enough money. This screams out to the universe that your frequency is one of lack and guess what you’re going to allow into your experience…. More things that match that same vibrational frequency: a lack of money.
You will continue to attract into your experience more of the things you do not want until you change your thoughts, feelings, and energy about them.
You need to get into ALIGNMENT with the frequency of what it is you want to manifest in order to allow it into your existence. Being in alignment is matching your frequency to your desires. This means the thoughts and emotions you are thinking and feeling match what they would be if you already have desires.
So, the most IMPORTANT thing to remember, (and you’ll hear me say this again and again) the secret sauce… is to FEEL GOOD. That’s it. Literally, that’s it.
I’ve explained to you the basics of the law of attraction, what vibrational frequency is, and why it is important, because it helps to have a more full picture understanding of this. But it is so easy to over complicate it.
The secret to the law of attraction, the secret to manifesting, is to FEEL GOOD. That is how you stay in alignment, that is how you get onto the frequency that matches your desires, and that is how you manifest whatever the hell you want.
Tips for Step 3, receiving your desires and allowing what you want by becoming a vibrational match with it:
Get yourself into alignment and focus on feeling good.
Your number 1 job is to make your emotional state your highest priority. At. All. Times. Your emotions are your guidance system. If you are feeling a negative emotion, that is your guidance system telling you that you are out of alignment with your true self, your source, and the frequency of your desires.
Your thoughts create an emotion within you, and every emotion has a different frequency.
It is very important for you to pay attention to your thoughts and emotions and to feel good about the subject you are wanting to manifest. You can be focusing all your thoughts on your desire but still blocking yourself from recieving it if you are not thinking positively about it. Remember this:
Every subject really has 2 subjects: what you desire, and the lack of it.
Think of it each subject as a stick – and there are two ends of the stick. The subject itself, and the lack of it. If the subject is health, one end of the stick would be healthiness, and one end of the stick would be sickness.
If you are trying to manifest better health, be aware of these two statements: “I want to be healthy” versus “I don’t want to be sick.” In the second statement, you are really focusing on sickness, which is the LACK of being healthy. Even though you are saying you do not want sickness, the attention is still given to sickness, so that is what you will manifest. If you focus on being healthy, tune your vibration to the feeling of good health, it can then manifest.
Your attention must always be on the desire, not the lack of it.
Start paying attention to your thoughts on the subject you are trying to desire. What side of the stick are your thoughts aligning with?
If you are having a hard time keeping your thoughts positive about your desire, that means you may have some limiting beliefs on the subject that you need to let go of. Any time you catch yourself thinking something negative about the subject, catch yourself and reword your thought. Reword your thought to put the focus on the positive aspect of your desire.
You CAN change your beliefs and it’s not as hard as you think. A belief is just a thought that you keep thinking. I don’t care how deep-seeded the belief is, I don’t care if it’s something that stems from your childhood. Once you recognize a limiting belief, you can train your brain to have a new belief by thinking the new thought over and over. In time, the new thought will become your new belief.
Don’t focus on the how.
As humans, our logical minds are constantly trying to find solutions. We set goals, break down the steps to achieve them, and believe that is the only way to get what we want. But boy, that is so terribly, terribly wrong. There are sooo many possibilities to achieve any outcome, possibilities that are far beyond our current level of thinking. We don’t need to work so hard for the things we want.
When we try to control something every step of the way like this, we block ourselves off from so much magic the Universe has waiting for us. If we first do the vibrational work to get in alignment with something before taking action towards it, it will come to us so much more easily. You might be unexpectedly gifted something that you want, randomly meet someone who can help you, win a contest, stumble upon a course or a book or any other tool to bring you closer to achieving your desire. The possibilities are endless. Once my boyfriend lost his wallet and it showed up in the mail a few days later with nothing missing. You never know.
There is not just one way of getting anything. There are endless ways and endless possibilities, you just have to open yourself up to receiving them.
Two summers ago I wanted to fly home to visit my family before my dad was deployed overseas with the military and I wanted to find a way to manifest the flight. One day my dad texted me and told me he just found out that the military was going to pay for my flight home so I can attend his pre-deployment ceremony. Neither of us knew that was even an option! Just an example of how things can come to you in unexpected ways.
When a desire sparks within us, the Universe is instantly making it available to us. It is already done. THAT is the how. All we have to do, is allow.
The Law of Attraction is the basis of our world, and all-that-is. Just like gravity, it is always working, always listening. YOU hold the power to use the law of attraction to deliberately create the life of your wildest dreams when you learn to direct your focus. The world is your oyster, my friend.
Now get out there, start manifesting, and most importantly – HAVE FUN! 🙂
P.S. – Here are some books I STRONGLY recommend for learning about the law of attraction, learning how to harness your power, and raise your vibration:
This is GOLD. “don’t focus on the how” is the most important piece for me!
“That which you seek is equally seeking you!”
